Locked in a deadlock with farmers over the central laws, Punjab BJP will intensify its efforts to convince them.

During his first virtual meeting with 670 top leaders of Punjab on Monday, Punjab in charge Dushyant Gautam, who is a Rajya Sabha MP and national general secretary of the BJP, brainstormed the gathering to counter the "misinformation" being spread by political opponents.

Jyani has failed farmers, must quit: cong

Fazilka: A large number of farmers and labourers led by former Fazilka Congress MLA Dr Mohinder Kumar Rinwa gheraoed and staged protest outside the residence of senior BJP leader Surjit Kumar Jyani at his native Katehra village on Monday. Dr Rinwa said Jyani should quit the BJP and join the farmers' protest as he being a head of the BJP coordination committee, Punjab, has failed to get the issue resolved. OC

Reacting sharply to the meeting, Punjab farmers said that the BJP was still blind to the plight of lakhs of farmers and their families who are sitting on New Delhi borders for the rollback of the "black" laws.

During the meeting, discussions also took place to prepare for the forthcoming municipal elections as many BJP leaders are apprehensive that their social boycott, being demanded by their political opponents, will create serious problems for them.

"Today, our Punjab in charge took the first virtual meeting. In the coming days, he will also meet everyone physically. Naxals and Leftists are running the present agitation by misguiding our farmers. We have accepted all demands like MSP, but anti-national forces are not allowing farmers to end their agitation. Our workers will intensify their efforts to share the details of laws to convince the farmers," said Jiwan Gupta, BJP state general secretary.

Apart from 15-20 top leaders of the BJP from each district, state party president Ashwani Sharma; Dinesh Kumar, sanghthan mantra, Punjab; and Subhash Sharma, general secretary of Punjab, also attended the virtual meeting. Sarjiwan Jindal, state executive member of the BJP, said that they would go house to house to clarify on the reality of the new laws.
